Lovely HOT day today, the cats have all enjoyed it, lazing around. Made this just before I have to get the evening meal. Chicken curry tonight. Yummyyyyyyyyy.

LIM Challange - Week 34 - Sketch

Morning everyone, Thank you for the lovely comments left on my blog last week. Well done for almost getting the 1000 also. A brillant effort. I had several images cut out on my desk waiting for me to do something with them and when this mornings challenge came up I thought this one fitted the bill. Its from a male themed pad from "the" called Men at Work.
A6 card landscape. Footballer mounted on to black card and I added a football embellishment.

Off to sort out the washing as its a lovely morning here and hopefully it should dry beautifully. Love the smell of fresh washing dried outside.

Have a good weekend

LIM Challange - Week 33 - Anything Goes.

Good Morning Limettes. What a challange - my mind went blank when I read "Anything Goes" not unusual people would say.... but my MOJO seems to have gone, I blame it on my visit to the Dr's and the Blood Lab to have blood tests done. I swear they take a pint - it looks like it from the bruise I have on my arm. Anyway I digress my first card is a cuttlebug die cut. I used the piece left as a stencil and used silver as a shadow. The snowflake I embossed with "Rainbow Crystal" embossing powders and jewels added for a bit of sparkle.

Card No 2 is a stamp I found when having a sort out and coloured in (not brillantly) with water colours. Card No 3 is die cuts using Martha Stewart punch and punches flowers.

I may be back during the week depending on whether my MOJO returns. Good luck in getting the 1000 posts. Come on Limettes we can do it.

LIM Challenge Week 32 - Seeing Double

God Morning LIMettes and Thanks once again to Chrissie and Mandi for another interesting challenge and the lovely comments you left on my last weeks entry. This week I chose "Grapes" As you can see we have an abudance of them here. This vine is outside our house and acts as shade in the summer when we eat outside. They are for making wine (we have tried to do in the past - not successfully) My OH dug the original root up from our field/garden when we first bought the house planted it outside and 14 years later its gone mad. Anyway here is my card for this week:

A6 White Hammered. Computer generated image and the sentiment is from
